    • Size of the storage
    • Access costs
  • Access Tiers:
    • Hot:
      • used for frequently accessed objects. High Storage costs and low data access costs
    • Cool:
      • Used to store large amounts of data that is not accessed frequently. Data access costs is high and storage costs is less
      • Data should be stored atleast for 30 days
    • Archive:
      • This is used for long term storage i.e. accessed rarely
      • To access this data it will take several hours
      • Very very less price for storage
      • Data shoule be present atleast for 180 days.
  • Next Steps: We will understand the pricing on what we have done so far.
